andrews@herald-mail.com Rising water rendered numerous area roads treacherous or impassable Thursday after more than an inch of rain fell on the area. As a result, crews in Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia responded to reports of vehicles getting stuck on waterlogged roads. A Washington County emergency dispatcher said many roads had been closed, especially along the Conococheague and Antietam creeks. As of 9:15 p.m., 22 roads still were shut down. Most clearly were marked as closed, yet some motorists still tried to drive through.

Little things mean a lot, especially when it comes to helping the environment. Individuals have the power to make a difference environmentally - and it doesn't have to be difficult, expensive or time-consuming. That's a big part of the message behind Pollution Prevention Week, which kicks off today and runs through Sunday, according to Region 9 Clean Air Connection Program Coordinator Jenni Vincent. “It's an exciting time because state environmental officials tell us that no other community in West Virginia has observed this national week before, but lots of folks in Berkeley and Jefferson counties have really gotten behind making citizens aware of this important message,” Vincent said.

marlob@herald-mail.com Last year about this time, area fire officials were worried about how the newly legalized types of fireworks in Maryland were going to interact with drought conditions in the Tri-State area during the Fourth of July holiday. There were no major incidents last year, although there was some confusion over the new law in Maryland that allowed ground-based sparkling devices for the first time in 60 years. "We were taking fireworks off the shelves all over the place last year," said Wayne Smith, a Hagerstown fire marshal.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. The Berkeley County Commission on Thursday approved buying 8.6 acres of land along Tabler Station Road to develop a new field operations headquarters for the county's emergency services and law enforcement operations.

The land, which would be bought from the county's Development Authority, is part of the future 326-acre Tabler Station Business Park.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A combination of extremely dry weather and a string of suspicious fires in Jefferson County has officials worried. The first suspicious fire was reported about 10:30 p.m. Thursday night, when about 40 bales of hay off Keyes Ferry Road caught fire, said Independent Fire Co. Chief Ed Smith. The bales, which were over six feet high, were located over a main distribution line belonging to Allegheny Power Co., Smith said. Several farmers helped in the battle by moving the burning bales with tractors to another area so they could be broken up and extinguished, said Smith.

More than 70 people on Sunday found themselves at a point in time when rock ’n’ roll was arriving in the United States. The performers at the time included artists like Bill Haley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly, and their influence was spread in part through appearances on television shows like “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “The Steve Allen Show.” The sound was re-created Sunday when a Berkeley Springs, W.Va.-based band known as The Flashbacks appeared at the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts on South Potomac Street.

Other than power outages that hit nearly half the homes and businesses in Berkeley and Jefferson counties, there were only a few reports of major structural damage from Friday night's thunderstorm, area emergency first responders told Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin here Sunday afternoon. Tomblin, along with James Hoyer, adjutant general of the West Virginia National Guard, and Jimmy Gianato, director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management for West Virginia, were on a six-county tour of the state to view damage and talk to the people who were first in line to handle emergencies created by the storm.
